I appreciate the advise. It was a factory v-8, this car was decied out to the max back in it's day. it had ac and everything... talk about having a hard time finding parts... wow. im so far into this thing now that there is no turning back. This thing is going to be bad ***! I know I can make something work and I am sure it has been tried before but even chip foose would probably be stumped on this one. Thanks for the reply.
